It sucks. It's disappointing. South Beach in January would have been the perfect place to watch the Horns play. But, on the other hand, have any of you been to Arizona in the wintertime? Pretty damn nice. I was there during the Holidays of 2006, staying in Sedona, where bunch of Sooner faithful had come to partake in the Boise State game. Needless to say, the airport the next morning looked as depressing as an AA meeting in a non-smoking facility with a broken coffee machine. Anyways...
Ohio State travels incredibly well, and there is no doubt that the Buckeye faithful will arrive en masse to watch their sweatervested team. I know it sucks that Texas isn't going to be in the National Championship, but I think a worse fate than missing out on the National Championship is making a BCS Bowl and having fans so disappointed about it that they don't show up.
If this were to happen, if Ohio State fans essentially made this a home game (because, in reality, Glendale is to Columbus what Pasadena is to Austin), then Texas may mess around and fall to this team, rendering every last ounce of frustration from the last few weeks meaningless. The way I see it, this game goes one of two ways:
A. Texas Tech - Cal 2004-2005 Holiday Bowl
B. USC - Michigan 2003-2004 Rose Bowl
If you remember these games, then you know what I am implying.
So how many of you are willing to put aside the frustration of Texas not being in the big show and seeing them ride out the season in glory in the Fiesta Bowl? For me, spending over 1500 dollars to have a 2 day stay in Austin for the 24-7 game in 2006 still hurts, and I'm willing to put down some coin to watch a more complete Texas team take it to that same team and banish them to the "Just can't win a BCS Bowl anymore" basement, where they can join up with Bobby Stoops and talk about the glory days and BCS Bowls past. But any idiot knows that Texas winning this game is far from a foregone conclusion, and having a significant crowd presence there will definitely be a boost for these guys. I want to congratulate them on a season that exceeded almost all expectations, and the best way I know how to do it is sport the burnt orange and roll with them to the Fiesta Bowl.
All I'm really asking is, are you going to Glendale or not?
